When you have the profound awakening that you are part of a cosmic process that’s going somewhere. You find yourself falling more deeply in love with what’s possible than you are with what has already happened.
This shift inevitably challenges almost all of your values and beliefs, including your ideas about what it means to love another person.
What are the conscious and unconscious values that inform your relationships with other people? Are those relationships primarily based on the past - on shared personal history and outdated cultural ideals? Or are they evolutionarily inspired, informed by the understanding that we’re part of a process that’s ever-aspiring to go somewhere new?
Are your relationships alive with the evolutionary impulse, with a shared love for what’s possible? Once we awaken to them, these future-oriented spiritual values are going to impact, in the most profound way, every notion we have of what life is supposed to look like.
